Habit-forming Medicines. Whatever may b the lact as to many of the go-called patent medicine containing Injurious ingredients as broadly Jiublished In some journals of hiSre or ess influence, this publicity has certainly been of great benent in arousing needed attention to this subject. It has, in a considerable measure, resulted in the most intelligent people avoiding such foods and medicines as may be fairly suspected of containing the Injurious Ingredients complained of. Recognizing this fact some time ago, Dr. Pierce, of Buffalo, N. Y., "took time by the forelock," as it were, and published broadcast all the Ingredients of which his popular medicines are composed. Thus he has completely forestalled all harping critics and all opposition that might otherwise be urged against his medicines, because they are now of knowx composition. Furthermore, from the formula printed on every bottle wrapper, it will be seen that these medicines contain no alcohol or other habit-forming drugs. N...

t OG3C 0 oc Why Not? Protect your buildings with Lightning Rods. You put spouts on your buildings to carry away the water but you have not provided anything to carry away the electricity. ' There is a great deal more danger in the electricity than in the water. Your insurance companies tell you that the right kind of Lightning Rods properly put on your buildings protects them. We claim the Struther Pure Copper Cable Rod is the best rod to protect your buildings, because it conducts the electricity from your buildings with the least resistance. Copper conducts electricity seven time3 easier than iron or steel, therefor an iron or steel rod would have to beseven times larger than a copper rod in order to give you the same protection. Then again iron rusts and wears away and copper does not. The Struthers Copper Cable Rods are made on scientific principles by men who have made a study of lighting for a great many years. These men have .shown by actual experiments that their way of maki...
